The person, firm or company buying is hereafter termed “the buyer” and The Jansen Group hereinafter is called “the Seller”.
The offer (whether written or verbal) of the buyer and acceptance of the Seller of an order constitutes a Contract of Sale (herein referred to as the “Contract of Sale”) subject to these conditions. Acceptance will not be binding upon the Seller unless and until this invoice has been completed by the Seller and no statements or representation by agents or others which are not so acknowledge will be binding on the Seller.
Prices as stated on the invoice overleaf are to be paid for the goods. Quoted prices are valid for 7 days and will only be valid if a member of the close corporation has signed the quotation. Unless otherwise stated prices quoted are net if paid punctually on due date.
Each delivery is considered as a separate contract and the price thereof is payable accordingly. Goods remain the property of the Seller until they are fully paid for.
Payment of the purchase price shall be due in accordance with a contract of sale and if not paid on due date, the amount outstanding shall bear interest at a rate of 2% (two percent) per month compounded monthly. (The charging of such interest shall not prejudice the Sellers right to recover any amount due from the Buyer or any other rights). No cheques are allowed.
Claims in respect of faulty goods/short delivery shall not be grounds for withholding payment for account and shall not give the Buyer any right to set off the claim amount against payments due to the Seller.
All claims must be lodged within five working days of date of receipt quoting the relevant invoice number on which the goods were supplied.
Return of goods for credit
The Seller reserves the right to refuse or to accept goods returned for credit.
The Seller reserves the right to refuse to recognise any complaint from the Buyer in respect of shortages especially where the invoice has not been endorsed with the amount claimed as having been short delivered.
A handling charge of 20% (twenty) percent of the value of the invoice will be charged on all goods returned. A special picking fee of 10% of the value of the invoice will be charged on goods ordered and subsequently cancelled.
The Buyer must return damaged goods to the Seller for inspection, and if the claim is recognised, replacement goods will be given to the Buyer against receipt of the Sellers credit note.
The Buyer and/or Seller utilizes the services of a courier company. The parties agree that the Seller is not responsible for any damages or shortages due to the negligence or act of mission or commission to the part of the courier. Delivery will be deemed to have occurred and liability will pass to the Buyer when their appointed courier collects the goods at the Sellers premises in Cape Town. Should the Buyer request that the Seller transports the goods to the Buyer at an address nominated by the Buyer, it shall be deemed that the Seller is acting as an agent for the Buyer in effecting such transport and it shall be deemed that the delivery shall have passed to the Buyer at the Sellers premises in Cape Town.
Signature of the Buyer, any agent, employee or representative of the buyer on the bottom side of the invoice binds the Buyer to this Contract of Sale as if the Buyer had signed the invoice personally.
The Seller does not guarantee delivery on any specific date but will endeavour to give delivery on the dates as agreed between the parties. The Seller does not accept responsibility for claims against it for damages of whatsoever nature arising from non-delivery of goods on due date.
No guarantee is given as to the suitability of goods sold for any particular purpose and the Buyer must satisfy himself as the suitability of the goods for the purpose for which these goods are required prior to despatch from the Sellers premises.
The Sellers liability for any goods, which may be proved to be defective, shall be limited to replacing the defective goods or at the Sellers options passing a credit note for the amount equivalent to the purchase price of the goods. In no circumstance will the Seller be responsible for any consequential damage of any nature which may arise out of the goods being defective in any way whatsoever.
In no case will the Seller except liability for deleterious effect resulting from application of any process or treatment (whether advised by the Seller or not) to the goods after delivery. Should the Seller apply any process or treatment to the garments on behalf of the Buyer (or at the Buyers request) the above will also apply.
Buyers Financial Position
Should the Buyer commit a breach of any of his obligations to the Seller whatsoever in respect of any other contract with the Seller, the Seller reserves the right to hold goods ordered by the Buyer until such time that the Buyer rectifies the breach.
Notwithstanding any other terms of this contract of sale:
The granting of credit by the Seller to the Buyer is in the Sellers sole discretion and the Seller reserves the right to suspend deliveries under this and/or any other agreement until all goods already delivered have been paid for.
Any dispute which cannot be settled by negotiations between the Buyer and the Seller, shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the Cape Town Magistrates Court, to which jurisdiction the Buyer hereby consents. All orders shall get accepted by the Seller at their premises in Cape Town and it shall be deemed that delivery to the Buyer has occurred when the goods have been collected by the Buyer, his agent or courier, at the Sellers premises in Cape Town.
No variation of the condition of sale shall be effective unless agreed to by the Seller in writing.
No guarantee is given to the suitability or quality of goods sold for any particular purpose and the Seller is hereby absolved of any liability of whatsoever nature for damages of whatsoever nature arising out of its direct failure or negligence in terms of this agreement or for any indirect damages to the Buyer.
